The Parent Auxiliary of Lighthouse consistently finds ways to show their appreciation for the staff throughout the year, but this month they have gone above and beyond with basket giveaways for The 12 Days of Christmas.
On each of the twelve business days leading up to Christmas, the plan was for the name of a staff person to be pulled either randomly or based on answers to Christmas trivia questions to win that day’s basket that was so kindly donated by a parent or family.
However, we have been both blown away and blessed by the generosity shown as this quickly turned into the 25 Days of Christmas! Baskets began pouring in and didn’t stop, even as the giveaways started. Themed baskets for Movie Night, Game Night, Coffee Lovers, and more (even one with Brenda Martin’s famous homemade bread and jelly!) filled Jen Swanson’s office.
To the parents and families who showed your gratitude to our staff in such a tangible way this holiday season—we offer you many thanks! While words seem inadequate, please know that you’ve brought excitement, joy, and Christmas cheer to our team, as well as the chance to learn more about each other in the process. We are grateful for each of you, and we thank you for entrusting the care of your loved ones to all of us here at Lighthouse!
